Overview

The Viognier from Domaine de la Janasse comes from a sandy and pebbly terroir just outside the boundaries of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and adjacent to the famed lieu-dit of Le Crau. The fruit is harvested by hand, gently pressed whole cluster, and fermented in vat. It is aged in foudre and French oak barrels of which 25% are new each vintage.
